LG's new projector: 120-inch screen from 7 inches away + 3700 lumens

Anthony Garreffa | May 22, 2022 6:52 PM CDT

LG has just unveiled its new CineBeam HU915QE projector, a new flagship Ultra Short Throw (UST) laser projector.

LG's new projector: 120-inch screen from 7 inches away + 3700 lumens 09

The new LG CineBeam HU915QE projector can project a large 120-inch screen from just 7 inches away, something its predecessor could do, but now it does it with a retina-busting 3700 ANSI lums of brightness. That's bright enough that you could enjoy a huge 120-inch screen, and still have your blinds up enjoying some sunlight.

LG says that it's using its "evolved, three-channel laser technology, which employs a separate light source for each primary (RGB) color, this new model is able to offer more vivid images even during the day compared to other conventional products with the single light source technology".

AUO teases next-gen brutally insane 480Hz laptop + desktop displays

Anthony Garreffa | May 15, 2022 6:43 PM CDT

AUO has just teased an incredible display feat: 480Hz -- yeah we're talking up to 480FPS -- during the SID Display Week 2022. Check it out:

The company teased two panels: a 24-inch 1080p 480Hz display for the desktop and a 16-inch 1080p 480Hz display for laptops. The company is only tapping a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) resolution, but all next-gen panels start at 1080p before moving up to 1440p and then 4K -- just imagine 4K @ 480Hz. AUO is tapping a TN panel with an average 1ms response time.

My problem here is that the gaming monitor world moved away from TN a while ago, where VA, IPS, Mini-LED, and especially OLED display technology are vastly superior. Still, 480FPS would be an incredible thing to see, with the company showing off CS:GO which is a game people running a 480Hz monitor would play. Mostly esports-funded and sponsored gigs where they don't get an option of what display they're using.

AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPUs get DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR certification

Anthony Garreffa | May 9, 2022 6:57 PM CDT

The world of HDMI 2.1 has been here for a while but it's mostly used on higher-end TVs and only a few gaming monitors, but DisplayPort 2.0 will soon help out... ushering in next-gen displays.

AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPUs get DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR certification 03

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced that the very first video source and display devices that support DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra-High Bit Rate) are supported by DisplayPort 2.0, and have passed certification through the DisplayPort UHBR Certification Program.

What does this mean? Well, it means that the higher bandwidths that are supported by UHBR offer uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K 240Hz HDR, 2 x 4K 120Hz HDR, or a bonkers 4 x 4K 60Hz HDR... all over a single DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR cable.

LG Display's gigantic OLED TV has Boba Fett overlooking Times Square

Anthony Garreffa | Apr 21, 2022 5:44 PM CDT

LG Display has been working with Lucasfilm's visual effects division, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and used its leading-edge OLED display technology to market The Book of Boba Fett in the middle of Times Square, New York City. Check it out:

The two companies are already knee-deep into the world of OLED displays and TVs in their everyday creative process, but with multiple OLED displays... well, the team at ILM wanted to do something different. LG explains: "An anamorphic video creates a visual illusion of the content being projected forward from a certain vantage point".

"With this technique, one can simulate 3D content on a 2D screen to provide the most immersive viewing experience. The complexity of this technique requires the utmost attention to detail, and LG Display's OLED provided this very solution, enabling the cutting-edge technology to power the video's unique visual effects".

Anthony Garreffa | Apr 13, 2022 5:28 PM CDT

LG has just unleashed its new C2 OLED TVs that were originally announced at CES 2022 (the Consumer Electronics Show) in January. They're now for sale, which means LG's smallest OLED is now ready to rock and roll.

LG display boss flexes OLED TV muscle, new OLED.EX tech: evolutionary

Anthony Garreffa | Apr 7, 2022 12:25 AM CDT

LG's next-gen OLED TV display technology, OLED.EX, is primed for the future and has been detailed in a recent keynote speech by Lee Hyeon-woo, Senior Vice President and Head of Life Display Business Group at LG Display.

LG display boss flexes OLED TV muscle, new OLED.EX tech: evolutionary 05

The next-gen LG OLED.EX panel technology boosts screen brightness by 30% and reproduces natural colors more precisely, which is thanks to the innovations in LG Display's world-leading OLED technology. Lee Hyeon-woo explained: "As a result of analyzing the color distribution of content such as over-the-air and OTT videos that customers mainly watch, 70% of the images were in the high-brightness area adjacent to white".

He continued: "There are very few videos that use primary colors or colors that combine only primary colors. It is more important to improve the image quality in the color gamut near white, and it is effective in realizing realistic images. By improving the screen brightness of OLED.EX, LG Display has completed a display that is closer to natural color expression".

We're being told to expect a larger 36-inch panel with a higher pixel density of 245 PPI -- compared to the 32-inch 6K panel on the current Apple Pro Display XDR -- and its 218 PPI.

Interestingly, inside of the new Apple Studio Display will pack a custom SoC with a codename of "J327" that will be a built-in Apple A13 chip. 9to5Mac says that their sources said that the "Apple Studio Display is the same J327 model - meaning that Apple has still been working on an external display with a dedicated Apple Silicon chip".
